Tejada asks for, gets release from Orioles
The Orioles granted infielder Miguel Tejada's request to be released Monday

Tejada, signed to a Minor League deal on May 8, hit .259 with a .621 OPS in 36 games for Triple-A Norfolk. He went 1-for-4 with a double Monday before the Orioles released him at his request.

Tejada played mostly third base with Norfolk and did not hit a home run in his time there. The 38-year-old former American League MVP was coming off a 2011 season in which he hit .239 with a .596 OPS in 96 games for the Giants, who released him early last September.
